I love this place. It's in the "new China town" in Brooklyn. It's very crowded but with locals, not tourists. The dimsum is authentic and not watered down for picky tourists. It's also CHEAPER than all of those touristy dimsum places in Manhattan's China town....More

Overrated dimsum in Brooklyn's Chinatown. There are way better options like East Harbor on 65th street. Pass over this restaurant if you want more than mediocre food. The interior is quite nice however, but that doesn't make up for bland cuisine.
